Product Review & Giveaway: GNU Bars

Hi friends!

I hope everyone had a good Easter! My Easter weekend was a bit stressful, and I went to the skin doctor to find out why little red spots keeping popping up all over my arms, back and sides…. apparently it's a common viral infection that will heal itself over a few months. At least it's nothing serious!

Time for another product review, and a giveaway – Happy Easter!

A little while ago, the kind people at GNU Foods agreed to send me a box of 8 of their 10 bars, with 2 of each flavor. They also sent me another of the exact same box to giveaway to one lucky reader – keep reading to find out how to win!

I really love GNU bars because they all weigh in at around 130-140 calories per bar, but each bar is still filling and full of fiber. They also don’t use a lot of added sugars, which I really liked.


As mentioned earlier, they sent me 8 flavors to review: Carrot Cake, Cinnamon Raisin, Blondie, Orange Cranberry, Chocolate Brownie, Blueberry Cobbler, Peanut Butter, and Banana Walnut.

Three of these flavors are new – the blueberry cobbler, blondie, and carrot cake bars. I found all of these to be delicious, but the blueberry cobbler was bar far my favorite! It was the first bar I tried out of the package I was sent and I liked it the best. It definitely tasted like a blueberry muffin – so yummy. It had all the components of a blueberry cobbler - blueberries, lemon juice, and oats 0 and big pieces of visible blueberries. The blondie, although I don’t eat many blondies, tasted like what I imagine a blondie to taste like. And I always love carrot cake - this was a great alternative to its more fattening cake cousin!

All the other bars were delicious, and tasted much like their names. A close second to blueberry was the orange cranberry. I loved the strong flavors present in this bar!
